'we have had a very impressive strategy for tackling some of the issues that have been raised,' the hagel aide said on wednesday, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the nomination's outlook. that is not to say that the confirmation is a foregone conclusion, supporters concede. critics have piled on to the initial critiques with charges that hagel's ties to defense contractors and other private sector firms may create conflict of interest. senator carl levin, the chair of the senate armed services committee, says that hagel will face tough questions about his past demands. democrats outnumber republicans on the panel 14-12, but committee insiders are not assuming that hagel will get the votes of every democrat.

islamic rebels in mali by deploying troops and drones to the country right next-door. our pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, is joining us with details. chris, how many u.s. forces, first of all, are we talking about? >> potentially, hundreds, wolf. and here's why. niger's ambassador to the u.s. basically confirms to cnn that his country is going to allow the u.s. military to place drones in niger. a u.s. official tells me that if that were to happen, you'd have to have an infrastructure there. in other words, you'd have to have operators to fly and guide the drones, as well as u.s. military security personnel to protect that infrastructure. so that's where you could get into the hundreds of boots on the ground. these drones would be unarmed, they would primarily be used for surveillance, spying on the al qaeda groups operating in places like mali. right now, the u.s. has drone bases in ja bu ty and southern europe, but the drones can't fly that far, so it's difficult to get accurate intelligence on what's going on with the militants there, wolf. >> how big is a threat of al q

to basically cut the pentagon into other things and to legitimate as by partisan some of the things obama wants to do. there have been lots of criticisms. chuck hagel has become a sand box for a proxy war whether it's sheldon adelson and others but the israel tough is the worse because hagel has been a strong supporter of israel for a long time. it's been interesting to see this play out. >> what do you make out of the fact when the president went over there as capped, he realized there were some folks in israel who didn't view chuck hagel as an ally. >> >> i sort of dispute the notion that that was there. i think the president when he went over separated before i knew about that trip, jack reed and chuck hagel were on the trip and neither went on the israel portion of it because they considered that to be more campaign. the other part was we were engaged in a war and conflict and they made the separation between what was campaign and what was sort of senatorial information gathering. maybe they made a deeper calculation they want want to have haig in israel because he was a touch point. i have
